Real Crime Scenes: The Evidence Speaks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only one lecture I really liked the lecturer, as she was engaging and funny and brought great expertise to the material. But there is only one lecture! I was so looking forward to the rest of the lectures and there are none to watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great first lecture but where are the rest? I really enjoyed the intro and the first lecture. The professor is a good speaker and story-teller and the topic is fascinating. Who should I contact to request that the rest of the lessons of this course be made available?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Speaker Ms. Murray’s lectures are well given. She explains thing to where you understand. I find myself putting off house work because I want to keep going on to the next lecture. She adds a little humor every now and then. She’s definitely not boring! And I love her clothes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating topic with great instructor-get it! I heartily recommend this course for anyone interested in the science and procedures of forensic analysis. For anyone writing novels where crime scenes are part of the plot, this course is superb for learning how things are actually done in the field and in the lab. The instructor combines knowledge of the field with a presentation style that I thoroughly enjoy. I watch Great Courses DVDs when I work in the kitchen, and this one actually makes me look forward to doing the dishes. I will watch many of the lectures more than once.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding The Professor was extremely knowledgeable in the subject matter and presentation was excellent. Interesting to learn how television gets it wrong and then learn the correct procedure. Really enjoyed the sample cases!! Highly recommend if you are interested in forensics.

With nearly 30 years in the field, I guess I was 'forensic' before it was cool! I find forensic science to be a fascinating subject that incorporates law, ethics, psychology, history, and technology, as it aids our global community.
